PSG Forward Neymar Has Hairline Fracture to Metatarsal, Set to Miss Real Game

PARIS – Paris Saint-Germain’s Neymar Jr. is expected to miss the crucial second leg of the Champions League round-of-16 tie against Real Madrid with a hairline fracture to the fifth metatarsal bone in his right foot as well as a twisted right ankle, the club said on Tuesday.

The PSG statement said scans had confirmed the Brazilian suffered “a twisted right ankle and a hairline fracture of the fifth metatarsal” on its website on Tuesday.

PSG coach Unai Emery told journalists that he was not ruling out the Brazil forward for the Champions League clash with Madrid, saying there was a slight possibility Neymar would take the field.

Neymar was injured in Sunday’s Ligue 1 victory against Marseille, and although the club has not said for how long he will be out, he is expected to miss the return leg of the UEFA Champions League round-of-16 matchup at home to holders Real Madrid on March 6.

PSG trails the Spanish giant 3-1.

Neymar joined the French side from FC Barcelona last summer for a world record fee of 222 million euros ($263 million), and has scored 29 goals in all competitions since the move.

The club also confirmed that his compatriot, defensive lynchpin Marquinhos, has a grade 1 lesion to his left thigh.
